East Harlem apartment description

Available to adults over 35 years of age for short term rentals from May 1st until November 21st, 2 week maximum. From November 21 to April 31 not available for rent. This apartment is my 2nd home, so it doesn't feel impersonal like many short term rentals. Comfortable and cozy, it was completely renovated in 2011 in harmony with its modern architecture. There are open city views from both the living room and the bedroom. Both rooms have ample lighting and comfortable furnishings. The small but efficient kitchen has all you will need to make your breakfast or elaborate meal. You will feel peaceful in this quiet home yet be able to step out into the activity of Manhattan. Descend in 1 of 2 elevators & walk out of the mid-century modern attended lobby and there in front of you is Central Park and down Fifth Avenue are many of New York's world class museums. The subways are close by, which can quickly take you to any of the many parts of New York City. Or take the bus down 5th Avenue along Central Park. Stop at any of the many museums or at 59th Street and the only Apple Store open 24 hours and the Plaza Hotel and Food Court. At 57th Street browse the many high end shops, which also continue down Fifth Avenue. Get off at 53rd Street to go to MoMA or continue on the Rockefeller Center. Check in can be as early as 9am but no later than 8pm, so your flight must arrive by 6pm to take into account delays and transport from the airport to the apartment. I need to know you flight arrival time 1 month ahead or immediately if your scheduled arrival is in less than 30 days. If you reserve and then tell me your flight arrives later than 6pm, I will refund you deposit. I personally meet you at the apartment to orient you and give you keys and need time to get back to my residence, which takes me 2 hours.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2011

              About the owner: I live and work on Long Island, 2 hours from Manhattan and come into the city to see exhibitions and see friends. I don't have time to use it as much as we would want, so we have decided to rent it once in a while, so it won't sit unused as much.

              Why the Owner Chose East Harlem:
              We love the location on Central Park, because we have 2 dogs who love to walk in the park. We will consider a request to bring your small dog with you on your visit to New York. We also love riding our bikes and running in the park. We love that public transportation is nearby, especially the 2 & 3 express that can get you to the West Side and Symphony Space (1 stop), Lincoln Center in 3 stops and the West Village or the High Line at 14th Street, all in less than 20 minutes.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Near good public transportation. If you decide to have a car there are parking garages near by, but we always seem to find a parking place on the street. Aside from English, I speak Spanish and my French is decent.
